For more than 35 years, smd+ has been successfully developing design, architectural and marketing concepts for international appearances by our customers, since Gerd Schneider founded the company, Schneider Messe Design, as a planning office for trade fair design and project implementation in the city of Aachen in 1981.
With the arrival of Doris Bültmann as Managing Partner in 1997, the company expanded its horizons and has since operated under the name, smd+partner
In 2002, Mario Niessen took over aspects of the business from Gerd Schneider and, as an architect, expanded the smd+ portfolio of services.
Since 2016, Dominik Leis has also been part of the business as an Associate Partner.
Numerous competition successes, high-value products and the joy of finding a successful solution to apparently impossible tasks, but, above all, a collaborative work ethic based on mutual respect with our customers (some of whom over many years) are just some of the characteristics that have shaped our work since then.
smd+ offers the development and implementation of innovative, marketing-centric design concepts for global trade fair appearances as well as the entire service spectrum of architectural planning, complemented by many years of experience in expert appraisal work for sound and heat insulation assessments and certified project management.
But what sets us apart is the connection between design and architecture, marketing and spatial implementation, innovation and tradition, all of which are associated with a broad range of skills and competencies that ensures the realisation of your project – professionally, punctually, cost-focused and global.
This approach enables us to adopt an holistic view of your project – including from unusual angles – and to ensure its success thanks to our comprehensive experience and passion for the job.
